Have merchandise you need to get rid of before or during your move?
Send unwanted merchandise to our thrift store (drop off prior to the move at the store and the clerk will give you a discount card for your move or we can pick the merchandise up the day of your move) and get up to a 15% discount off of the moving service charge!
INSURANCE/BREAKAGE/DAMAGE for our moving and pickup/delivery services
Cargo insurance is included for wrecks and major occurences of breakage/damage during transportation. DAMAGE/BREAKAGE MUST BE REPORTED BEFORE THE MOVERS LEAVE, NO EXCEPTIONS! Non-transportation major damange will not cover items that 2 movers are not able to comfortably lift or dolly. Insurance claim for non-transportation damage is limited to 50% of the total cost of the move. Scratching of an item or breakage of a small item falls under minor damage and may be covered by purchasing our small claim insurance prior to the move. However, if not purchased, minor damage is still covered in the form of a discount of up to 10% taken off your service charge. If your move was discounted, the amount of the damage must be ABOVE the amount discounted. The discount will be subtracted from the estimated damage and the the 10% will be applied. 10% is the maximum given DUE TO OUR ALREADY LOW RATES. For wall/door scraching from bulky furniture/appliances which can occur during a move even with very careful manuevering, the maximum discount is 5% since this usually requires just a small amount of touch-up paint and possible spackling. Since we do not offer packing services, damage from poor packing or the bottom of a box falling out is not covered.
Any damage issue must be positively identified as a result of the move and reported prior to the movers leaving. The insurance agent can not take a customer at his "word" in order to file a claim, there can be no doubt that the damage was caused during the course of the move.
For our rates, we ask that all "expensive" merchandise that is breakable or scratchable that you are concerned with be wrapped prior to the movers arriving. It is up to you what you wrap or choose not to wrap, however, if not wrapped and a scratch/break occurs, only a 10% discount will be applied. We do provide padding on the truck as we are loading/stacking.
For items that 2 movers can not comfortably lift or dolly, the move may be declined, if accepted, insurance will not cover the items.
